Victor Higgins, Taos Study, ca. 1920's, oil on canvas, unframed


Peso Priced Item.  Original Oil Painting by Victor Higgins, Taos Study, ca. 1920's.

10.5" by 15" unframed.

We're dating this in the 20's when he did most of his paintings that included American Indians.

The title "Taos Study' in carved into the stretcher on the back and it is signed in script "V. Higgins" and the price $400 on the verso of the canvas. Some crazing, slight paint chipping.

From my personal collection of '20's 30's art.
